Happy Mothers Day!

Tam and I did an "Extreme Kitchen Cupboard Makeover" for Mom & Dad when we were out in April. So as a Mother's Day tribute I thought I'd share the fun.

Me: Mom, how old do you think this is? (holding up a can of something that the label is peeling off from.)

Mom: (thinking) I didn't buy that too long ago...

Tam: (after finding the 5th bottle of ketchup) I think this one came over from the farm...

Me: (peering at the label) Expiration Date: June, 2002

Fast forward to yesterday afternoon: called Dad and he told me that mom was out shopping for blueberries to make a pie for Sunday dinner because Krista & family were coming over. I'm thinking to myself... there are TWO cans of blueberry pie filling in the cupboard (right side, second shelf from the top.) Ketchup was probably on sale again too, never can have too much ketchup... or jello.

Love you Mom! :)

I can SO relate to that kitchen cupboard—I have to do the same in my house, only it would be the other way around…my Mom would be helping me! I had a friend over last year and her passion in life is cooking. I was so embarrassed. She tried to be nice about it, but the expression on her face when she saw dates like 1998 on the baking soda, and 2003 on the shortening was too much! She actually threw it away and made Paul take her to the store to get me all new stuff; (some of it is still unopened, but it is dated 2008)!
